  • This DJ Mustard-produced track was released as the second single from Jeezy's twelfth Mixtape, It's Tha World. The song features a guest appearance by 2 Chainz.
  • The song finds Jeezy having a good time. He explained the meaning of its rest in peace title to MTV News: "When you leave the club you just wanna body it. You wanna be the best dressed, you wanna drink all the champagne, all the vodka and you wanna get all the grils — and that's killin' the club," he said. "When you leave, it should feel like a murder scene."
  • The song's music video features cameo appearances from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, Nelly, E-40, YG, Ne-Yo and Ludacris as well as 2 Chainz. "I was shooting a video and everybody just came through and showed love. They stayed longer than was asked and they did everything they were supposed to do," Jeezy said of his star guests. "You see who your real friends are and the people who love your movement."
